  • Province

    Ontario

  • Start Date

    2022

  • Total Grant Amount

    $99,789

  • Health Canada Contribution

    $49,895

Project Overview

Fetal growth restriction is associated with pregnancy complications, as well as high rates of preterm birth and childhood disabilities. This is a complex disorder that impacts the development of the placenta and limits blood flow to the fetal brain, depriving the fetus of oxygen and nutrients needed to grow. What’s…

  • Total Grant Amount

    $100,000

  • Health Canada Contribution

    $50,000

Project Overview

Slow oscillations (SOs) measured using electroencephalography (EEG) are a common feature of states with little to no conscious experience, such as coma, sleep, and anesthesia. A novel neuromodulation technique has recently been shown to amplify SOs during sleep, through the administration of auditory stimuli in synchrony with the peak of…

  • Health Canada Contribution

    $49,974

Project Overview

The emerging consensus that the brain functions as a single, complex system has led to the popularity of a network approach to studying brain function. Functional connectivity, a measure of the coordinated activity between brain regions, has been observed in neuroimaging studies to change during aging and could be related…
